Meet the Obenchains

from Colorado

Perhaps the higher altitudes of the Colorado Rocky Mountains inspired the idea of adopting "Higher Attitudes" in our daily  thinking, acting, and living. The views you find from the top of a mountain are like no other beauty. The views we have when we learn to adopt higher attitudes are no less inspiring!

Julie and Tom

Tom and Julie are saddened by the struggles so many face. Their own marriage struggles were made easier as they applied true principles found in scripture and taught by inspired leaders. They are passionate about marriage and helping others take positive steps to strengthen their own relationships long before it is too late! They love mentoring couples who are committed to nurturing their marriages.
